When you think about comfort food, things like macaroni and cheese , pasta, and pizza immediately come to mind. One handheld that has gripped Americans for decades is fried chicken. Battered and fried to a golden crisp , nothing can beat the magical appeal of this popular chicken dish. It's so good, that it's even spawned fast-food chains and independent restaurants.

If you love taking a bite out of juicy, crispy chicken, LoveFood compiled a list of every state's best fried chicken joint, from thriving chains to under-the-radar spots.

Ma'ono was named Washington's top fried chicken joint! Here's why it was chosen:

"With a few locations in Seattle, Ma'ono is ran by James Beard–winner and Hawaiian-born Mark Fuller. He draws in throngs of adoring customers with his brined, buttermilk-soaked, umami-spiced, twice-fried chicken. It's spiced to your preference, from 'naked' to generously seasoned with Carolina reaper and ghost peppers, and served with daikon pickles and a choice of dip. You could also enjoy it sandwiched in a sweet bun with kewpie mayo and lettuce."

Ma'ono has four locations across Seattle : Capitol Hill, University Village, South Lake Union, and West Seattle.
